The Oxford Academic Health Science Centre (Oxford AHSC) is the partnership and close alliance between four organisations within the NHS and Academia:
- Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust;
- Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust;
- Oxford Brookes University; and
- the University of Oxford
The Oxford AHSC coordinates clinical and academic excellence within the partners, working across the individual organisations and their departments and with other key stakeholders within Oxfordshire and beyond. These stakeholders and collaborators are drawn from all branches of academia, from health and from industry and the third sector.
The Oxford AHSC is an integrated research environment, physically and strategically embedding basic and translational research with clinical evaluation. Using this, the partnership seeks to accelerate and realise patient benefit from research, by enabling smooth transition of innovations through the stages of the research lifecycle and into clinical practice.
Collaboration and partnership are enabled and strengthened by the close location of the partners in the Headington Campus.
